DAF XF named Fleet Truck of the Year
The DAF XF has been voted "Fleet Truck of the Year 2016" at the "Motor Transport Awards" in London, DAF's sixth win in nine years.
Regarded as the "Oscars" of the commercial vehicle manufacturing industry, the Motor Transport Awards recognise excellence in a number of categories, the most prestigious of which being the "Fleet Truck of the Year" award.
The jury shared that DAF was chosen for the accolade due to its excellent combination of proven reliability, efficiency and top class dealer support. "The great fuel economy makes the XF a top fleet performer", the jury said. "DAF is completely focused on maximizing vehicle uptime. As an operator, that gives you great confidence."
The company's constant upgrades for its XF range also received special mention. "DAF has ensured the cab design has continually evolved and there's plenty of space inside for the drivers" the jury added.
Richard Zink, Marketing and Sales Director, DAF Trucks commented, "I am delighted the jury members recognised that the DAF XF offers unequalled low cost of ownership and class leading driver comfort and is backed by a strong and professional network."
"The Motor Transport Awards are judged by an independent panel of hauliers and fleet operators, making winning the Fleet Truck of the Year award even more valuable."
The award was presented at an official ceremony, which was attended by 1,600 leading representatives from the transport industry.
